After yet another week on medication she was fine im glad I tock her in but my wallet hates me as they charge an amazing $95.00 per visit PLUS meds and vet time. Horrific I know but the things we do because we love our animals.
She is now very healthy and has a very loud but loving squark to prove it. Thank you for your lovley welcome to both myself and Mojo I look foward to chatting with you all.

My name is Mary and I am a central Floridian Equestrian. I ride Dressage primarily but the only Equestrian sport I've not ridden is Steeple Chase.
ANY way... there are VERY few animals I have owned in my 38 years, and recently, a boarder has possibly talked me in to a couple of ducklings from Tractor Supply Company. I have ZERO duck knowledge... which is fairly humbling because aside from pigs too, I have a VERY extensive animal knowledge base. Lol SO any and ALL advise is GREATLY appreciated! I know the basics. They need warmth. Duck food (which is confusing so far from information of googled. Some say commercial duck food is bad, some say not. Some say the duck pellets, but made in to a mash as ducklings. These appear to be eating just the crummy looking food... certainly not a pellet. I know how to make a pellet mash if they need one. I wouldn't feed them the horse pellets, so no worries there. I know these being hatched in incubators and not from Mom the have no oil in feathers yet, so no little pools just yet. I know safe pens from raccoons and birds and cats and such are paramount.
They can live in the tack room in a pen until of...........what age? The man at TSC did not recommend they be off a heat lamp just yet, even as warm as it is here in Florida.
At what age can they be off it?
When and how will I know when they have oil in their feathers? Enough for a little dish to splash in?
When can they have a baby pool?
How can you tell what sex? (would hate to name him Selina or some such girly name)
What kind of treats can they have? I saw bread is actually a nono. Other things listed like chocolate was a given. I would think the things like my horses could have or most livestock? Apple bits? Carrots chopped fine or shredded? Pear bits?
Ummm so that is ALL I know. Other than I have ALWAYS loved them!
Thank you all so much!

You may want to start a new thread so that people will be able to find it and reply appropriately. I'd help, but I really don't know anything about ducks, other than I've seen ducklings swimming around in water prior to developing their adult feathers.

You can download free image editing software or use stuff on the internet. Paint is a decent and simple program. You might also look into getting an account with a free image hosting website. Photobucket and Flickr are a couple of image hosting websites.

I guess I'm just looking for any support, advice ect... Please no lectures on him being wild, I know he is happier than he would be dead. Any advice on training would be great, he knows step up.. I bought him a flight suit b/c of the pooping but that didn't go over well at all!!!! he can fly short distances maybe 5-10 ft at a time. Thanks for any advice! Oh yea and I have a 8 lb black poodle and these 2 have become good friends!! And his name is Leroy

I had two parakeets at one time, but they have since passed away.... One just a few days ago, unfortunately. (Rest in peace, Polly and Tweety... I love you!)
I'm into a lot of other stuff, and I'm really weird. LOL. Check my profile if you want to learn more, as I'm too lazy to type all of that out again.
Speaking of my profile, there is a link to my Gaia Online profile there. Send a message along with your friend request if you decide to add me there, as otherwise I will interrogate and/or ignore you. 'Tis my policy, you see?
Pics and stuff are in my Gaia Journal because I'm too lazy to post them anywhere else except Facebook (which nobody I don't trust won't be seeing). Nyeh.
I'm a novice bird owner, as I've not had very much experience with them... I hope to be a total Bird-Wiz in the future, though. I love all birds~ <3
But yeah. I've said too much already. Sorry. >.<;;;

Over the years I've had every bird from finches to macaws, and everything in between. This experience entitled me to a position of vice-president of a bird club for a couple of years. There we wrote pamphlets on bird care and training, educated the general community on bird handling and their natural environment, and raised funds for the Manu Preserve. It was a rewarding experience until my natural family started to grow, so I had to retire to raise my own child.
I'd be happy to help with any bird related questions anyone might have. Birds are such rewarding guests in our homes, as long as they don't eat it.
